A while back I read about a high end lighting piece on one of the design blogs I usualy browse..

I can't for the life of me remember where I saw it but it's been something I keep wondering about and figure might be an interesting project to try and build.

Basically the concept was a floor lamp with a LED light fixture mounted on top with a diffuser that had a single ccd camera built into it I believe.. when you held an object up to the sensor it would make its best guess at the color of the object and then adjust the LED light to match the color.. I thought this was rather unique and the concept itself seems quite doable..

has anyone seen anything similar or interested in building something like this? I wish I could provide more details but this was quite some time ago that I read about it..

would love to hear any ideas you have on this..

That's cool, are you still going to build it ?,
I think I may try as well,

Heres a PC controlled LED lamp I am building capable of lighting up a room, (Note I am affiliated with the company that makes the components).

So, I will get the lamp to change any colour by setting the RGB.

The light sensor, I'm thinking a webcam in a tube, with a small white light source (whiteLED).

SO it'll work like this:
Capture the web cam, get average RGB, output it to the Lamp.
